Product Description: This NSDAP Three Piece Armband With RZM Tag is a one-look original piece, with wonderful character. There is no doubt that this is one that was worn. It’s a quality, multi-piece example, entirely made of thin cotton fabric. The swastika is made of two pieces of black fabric, carefully folded and machine stitched in place; this has been affixed to a white roundel which is machine sewn to the red fabric armband. It’s finished with machine stitching along the long edges, and the ends have been sewn together in the back as well. The back side of this armband has been folded and carefully hand-stitched to itself to make it smaller, perhaps for wear by a young person or a woman. Inside, this armband still retains its original RZM paper tag, with a “B” tax code. It’s nice to see an original paper tag on a worn example like this. This NSDAP Three Piece Armband With RZM Tag retains nice original color, with light soiling from wear to the exterior. It’s a great example, in excellent condition.



Historical Description: Nearly every military, civil, political and paramilitary organization in existence during the Third Reich used armbands. Armbands were worn on military and civilian uniforms and also on civilian clothes, from suit jackets to work clothing. They were used to denote membership in organizations, to indicate a specific role or function of the bearer, and as insignia of rank. Many organizations would change the design of their armbands over time, which added to the variety produced. These were manufactured in countless variations, ranging from simple printed bands to elaborately hand-embroidered pieces of the highest quality. Some Nazi armbands were worn by all members of large organizations and were made by the millions. Others were intended for use at a specific time and place and were unique. Many types were made in very limited numbers. Some bore metal insignia or special identifiers that indicated the wearer’s rank, unit affiliation, or nationality. Armbands were sometimes but not always marked with ink stamps by the issuing authorities.
